I'm assuming you mean the Canadian junior WHL? If so, players in this league, as in all three Canadian junior leagues, are not pros and are not paid a salary, no matter what the NCAA would have you believe. The players are paid a standard allowance, their lodging is taken care of and so on. However, there is no salary structure for players as there is in the professional leagues.

The hockey puck was invented so hockey players had something to shoot into the goal.

They don't. Most pro level hockey players wear no socks so they can "feel" the ice, improving performance.

Yes. Hockey players are tougher, so they don't need all that padding even though they are falling on ICE. Hockey pads are for blocking shots mostly with a little impact protection.

in a legitimate hockey game, there are 5 offensive/defensive players per. side, and then a goalie at each end. So, there are 12 players on the ice at one time.

If you mean how many PLAYERS are on a hockey team, then it can vary. Minor hockey teams often have 12 skaters and 2 goalies, so 124 players. But on an NHL team, they have 4 lines of 5 skaters, so 20 skaters in total. Add on the 2 goalies and you get a total of 22 players on the average NHL hockey team.If you mean how many PLAYERS PER LINE on a hockey team, then there are 2 Defense, 3 Forwards, and 1 goalie. So that's 5 skaters, and 1 goalie.
